Ordinary Angel is an extraordinary CD. Extraordinary firstly because of the quality of performers and performances it features. The list of artists who contributed tracks to this compilation sounds more like a roll call of Scotland's finest performers. Extraordinary also because, for a compilation, an unusually high proportion of its tracks were specially recorded for this CD. Extraordinary too because the CD is to celebrate the all too short life of the eponymous ‘Ordinary Angel’, and to raise funds for an establishment which did so much to provide her with more time than the illness she had would normally allow.

Sheila and Stephen McCabe grew up in Airdrie but since 1996 had been living with their three young children in the Isle of Skye. In 2002 Sheila was diagnosed with a rare form of liver cancer to which she succumbed, after an extraordinarily brave struggle, in Spring of this year. She was only 41. The skills of the Liver Unit at Edinburgh Royal Infirmary provided Sheila with hope, strength and, above all, time which she otherwise might not have had. In recognition of this, Stephen began to plan the production of a fund-raising CD, and Ordinary Angel is the outcome of his efforts.
